Sami Zayn has done an outstanding job of reinventing himself in the last few years. Going from plucky fan favorite to annoying pest with a crazy conspiracy theory has not been easy but he has made it work. This should not be the biggest surprise as Zayn has wrestled all over the world for years now. During his career, he has faced some legends and now he wants to face another.
A fan recently tweeted out a video of Zayn, as El Generico at the time, facing X-Pac during a match from ten years ago in Chikara. Zayn responded, saying that he tried to get a match with X-Pac set for Summerslam 2019. X-Pac then responded to Zayn, saying that he was dealing with some injuries at that point, but there is always next year’s Summerslam if that is a match fans would want to see. There is no word on if WWE would have any interest in presenting the match. Zayn did not wrestle at Summerslam 2019 and X-Pac’s last match with WWE took place in 2002. He has not wrestled at all since April 4, 2019.

I had a few health/injury issues that needed addressing at that time. Now that I’ve taken care of them, there’s always next #SummerSlam…if that’s something people want to see. #wwe https://t.co/Vi4EDorGEO
